For some reason, that cheesy line at the end of Extreme Makeover Home Edition just popped into my head- "Well, I guess there's only one thing left to say.... Welcome Home, Kolkhorst family. Welcome Home." Enjoy your happily ever after!

Hope we don't have to wait for Rice to qualify for another bowl game to see you guys!

That is the best news I have heard all day! I am so incredibly happy for you. What a healing experience for you and your husband. And to think that all of your hard work made it possible for your daughter to be at home with her family rather than in the hospital for months on end. I know that with the birth of my second- I shed some of the pain I experienced from my first (preemie). God bless you all. She is beautiful!

Anne Marie,

I have an incompetent cervix as well. We lost our son last year at 21 weeks and 6 days. we are pregnant with a little girl now who is named Delilah Rae, and we are 3o weeks pregnant. i had an emergency cerclage at 24 weeks with this one and have been on and off of mag and terbutaline and in and out of the hospital. i have been on strict bedrest since 24 weeks and will continue until 34.

So, after telling my life story i just want to tell you what an inspiration you and your family are to me! I found your blog and was keeping updated on you before the problems started with this pregnancy, and i am just so grateful that the Lord showed me someone else out there like me. i have admittedly struggled much with my faith during this pregnancy after watching my son die, but your faith is such an encouragement. you inspired me to make a blog too

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope you and your family are enjoying being home FINALLY!
